. OF FRUIT BUSINESS
A .method by which tho fruit Rrow.
cr of. tho ItoRuo nivcr vnlloy mtiy
)nato 100 vcr cent more profit was
outlined by Hon. W. A. Pntilhnmua
of IMtynllup, Washington nt tho Nntn
torlum Wednesday afternoon.
Tho method In Tirlof la for tho
grower to pay qunrtr of cent ft
box for tho maintenance of a growers
council which In turn will so organ
ize tho orchard production of tho
northwest that prices may ho main
tained throughout tho country. Tho
Bpeakor said that with such an or
ganization ho believed tho grower
would receive 25 cents moro per box
oven undor present conditions.
There Is no attempt to dtctata as
to what organisation tho local grow
er shall ship through, tho only re
quirement is that every member of
tho organlratlnn sign an agreement
that ho will not ship through any
soiling agency not subject to tho dir
ection of tho shippers council.
"Thore aro from five to seven hun
dred different sellers" said the
speaker." far too many, but wo must
go slow. If wo tried to weed out tho
bad ones wo would atl be dead before
an) thing could bo accomplished. Wo
must tako conditions as they aro and
try to Improve them slowly, growing
to tho ideal condition by degrees."
Cut Out Contffrnmcnt
"Our principal desire at present Is
to cut out tho consignment business.
No member of the council can sell
on consignment and no sane person
should want to sell on consignment
Wo havo no objection to cash sales,
though If everyone sold independ
ently there would bo too much book'
"AH o will, try. to.tlo now will bo
to keep books with 'tho Foiling agen
cies, know over)' day what fruit is
coin, where Wid for Vhavprlco and
!ollovc wo can maintain the
and eventually dlciato as to
tho prlco shall bo."
"Tho mombors of tho cxecutlvo
committee, Mr. Haskell, Mr. Duller
and myself will call in tho selling
representatives and talk,otcr with
them what they consider proper pri
ces for the year, for 8pitz, Yellow
Now towns, Comlco pears, etc., etc
and then after considering every con
dition wo will tell' them our price.
Wo may havo to lower that prlco if
wo find we were mistaken. Wo have
no dcslro to treat the selling agen
cies unfairly. Our purpose Is to co
operate with them to our mutual
benefit. The only way wo can stabil
ize tho market is through organiza
tion and co-operation."
Mr. I'aulhamus then showed tho
result of tho samo principles applied
in tho canning business in I'uyallup
whero bo said many years ago they
considered S00 crates of raspberries
glutting tho market. Thoy found
later that with organization they
could sell a hundred times as many
crates at 30 per cent higher prices.
Tho sumo result would follow In any
lino of business whero business prin
ciples wcro adopted, ho maintained.
Help l'coplo Already Hero
Regarding tho local condition In
gonor.il Mr. Paulhamus said if Med
ford would pay less attention to liter
ature for securing now settlors and
moro attention to helping tho Bottlers
hero mako a living tho country
would bo vastly Improved. Get your
commercial club to get behind your
local Industries. Hero Is tho apple
juico factory for examplo, boost it,
help it and you will soon havo a
most vnluablo industry horo. Mako
local business profitable and your
r.rowth in- population will follow ns a
matter of course
"You havo spent much llroo upon
tho proper methods of growing fruit,
Bpraylng, smudging, pruning, ec, etc,
Theso aro nil important, of course,
but what good does It do you to raise
tho host pear In tho world it you
can't get a profit on It. From my
experience I should Eay that growing
tho fruit was about 25 per cont of
tho business and soiling it about 75
lor cent. You need first of all cap
able nnd aggresslvo kailorshlp and
organization. With these two factors
there Is no reason why tho fruit bus
iness can not bo made as profitable
kb any other business."
Mr, Paulhamus was Introduced by
W. A. Wostorlund and his talk was
forcoful, direct and full of practical
common sense. At the conclusion of
tho meeting a large numbor of
growers joined the council and tho
applause was most enthusiastic when
the speaker took his seat.

How Ln Loie intrepidly entered tho

to have exhibited nt the expoi ion the
work of a sculptor she considers the

hlory of compelling niiniiiioo.

Hut for In Loie's courage and indom

Mrs. A. H. Spreekels, these exquisite
works of genius might still he repos
inc in fragile ihv'cr in Put mint's
studio nt the beach here.
The story Hind its beginning in
Paris Inst July. Ln Loie, who has
lived for twenty-two years in that
qity nnd is of the inner circle of Par
isian artists, went with Mrs. Sprook
cls to the home of Francis Auhiirtiu,

law in the judgment of works of nrt

A salon was then in preparation.
On a mantel Mrs. Sprcckcls recogniz
ed n small bronze punin as the work
of Putnam. Auhiirtiu imd gien it
only cnsunl notice, but with his nt
icntion drawn ho quickly recognizid
its high merit
It was prominently placed in tho
union, nnd as n result Putnam ws
within n few otcs of being admitted
to the circle of artists which had re
fused to admit Rodin to its cxclusite
Lu,Loio came to San Francisco last
August nnd immediately besought
Mrs. Sprcckcls to take her to sec the

to J. I). Trttsk, chief of tho fine arts

work, but said it could not be plnccd
in the palace of fine arts unless done

A few weeks later found La Loie on
the Atlantic with three boxes contain

The art foundries of America were
too busy with cxmition sculpture to
handle tho work.
In Loudon she left the lioxw while
she went nbcad to Pnris to rccomioi

To finish ami polish the bronzes
properly would take more than n i'ar
of one man's time. There were
twenty-six of the figuies, duplicates
having been made. She went to the
man who does the finishing for lto-
din, showed him Putnam's work and '
induced him to gtrhur hi forces nnd
go to work upon the sit of bronzes.

Getting out of France with the
bronzes was another problem mul La I
Loie i reticent on this (mint. Hut it

with nulographed works of French

bringing to America to dispose of for

.Meanwhile Putnam had been anx
iously inquiring of Mrs. Sprcckcls re
garding tho fate of La Loie and bis
helot ed plaster models. One day in
tho latter part of February, nearly
five mouths after the dancer had left
here on her mission, word was receiv
